The Shawshank acquisition made a risky move for Frank Darabont

In an interview with Charlie Rose (this is obviously over a few years ago), Darabont revealed that King approached him about “The Green Mile” before he even started writing it:

“[H]e said… I’ve been challenged with this idea. I’m thinking of writing it down, let me tell you about it. You wouldn’t want to do that, that’s another prison thing,” and I said, ‘You’re right, Stephen, I wouldn’t want to do it, but tell me anyway. ‘ And he told me this idea, and I was so intrigued that I said, ‘Oh, okay, you’re right. I wouldn’t want to do that, but let me know first if you write it down. that. ‘”

King is a man of few words, which makes perfect sense for Darabont. After the director read the first part, he knew he had to make the movie. “[W]hen, I read that first book,” he recalls thinking, “Oh my god, I’m going back to prison. I have no choice.’ I can see where Steve is here. You know, I know his job very well, I know he’s going to go somewhere very special with this. “
